David Korevaar’s recording with the Carpe Diem String Quartet of Piano Quintets by Luigi Perrachio and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco is now available (Da Vinci Classics Coo697). The album features the world premiere recording of Luigi Perrachio’s Quintet for 2 Violins, Viola, Cello and Piano (1919) and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Quintet No. 1 in F Major for 2 Violins, Viola, Cello and Piano Op. 69 (1932).

Korevaar discovered the original, unpublished manuscript of Perrachio’s Quintet in Turin, Italy at the Conservatorio G Verdi as part of his extensive research into the works of the composer. Korevaar’s expertise and knowledge of Perrachio is reflected in the liner notes for this release which he authored. The Quintet has now been published by Da Vinci Press under his supervision.

Award-winning pianist David Korevaar and the brilliant Carpe Diem Quartet have a long collaborative history. They celebrated the modern premiere of this long-lost work in the summer of 2021. “Bringing this music to life for the first time since its premiere has been a privilege,” says Korevaar. This album follows on the success of Korevaar’s highly acclaimed disc of world premiere recordings of piano music by the Luigi Perrachio of 9 Little Poems & 25 Preludes (MSR 1710). In reviewing the earlier disc Gramophone exclaimed “Kudos to David Korevaar for bringing Perrachio’s inventive and pianistically resourceful piano music to light and playing it so wonderfully well,” and notes that “none of the piano works on this disc had been recorded before David Korevaar wrapped his enterprising and skillful hands around them, lavishing the utmost in loving care upon each and every piece.”
